While preparing for study abroad, it sometimes so happens that we start thinking that scores of IELTS or TOEFL and GRE or GMAT or any other exam are sufficient to get admission into a college. The truth is they are not. Getting a good score obviously increases your chances of getting admission. But then getting a low score does not mean you have no chance of getting into the college.
There are other things that have a role to play. You statement of purpose, a letter of recommendation, the cir-cum vitae, your essay sample. This does not mean that you should stop preparing for these exams. The point is you really need to get good marks in them but even if you don’t and you have a very strong hold on the other things, you may get admission. remember, you need to have a good strong over the other things, if you don’t get good marks. In the end, you as a whole matter.
So, anyone out there, who thinks that may be I will not get admission, because I am poor in English, remember they accept people who are talented. English proficiency is required so that you could communicate well. so, if you think that you have the x-factor, that you have it in you, don’t shy away, thinking you may not get good marks in these exams. They are just part of the application proses, not the entire application process. Work hard and remember, If there is a will, there is a way.
Getting a good score in IELTS is easy. Getting your dream college is just the beginning. Life does not end there. Rather, it begins from there. Surely you know English but then studying abroad is not just about knowing the language. You might be in a completely different part of the world. People with ideas that do not match yours. Maybe their way of living is different. Yes, the experience is beautiful but no one said there aren’t any hardships.
The competition is tough. You have taken the first step towards your dreams and now you have to climb the entire ladder. The motive here is not to scare you. Not even to tell you that do not study abroad, because it is tough. The point is you have to work hard to get the fruit when you are off for the study abroad. There might be times when you would be fighting the clock. There may be sleepless nights. It could be possible that you have some harsh experiences. There might be times when you could see no hope, being positive will help you. Remember, you have to die to get the heaven.
In no means abroad study difficult. You will surely have fun doing it. New people, new ideas, new places. You will learn a lot about their culture. You may even tell them about yours. There will be friendships that last forever. It is all going to be there, the fun as well as the struggle.
So, be mentally prepared. Remember, life is not walking around beaches, it is climbing the ladder. It doesn’t matter how good climber you are, what makes the difference is whether you quit or hold on.
